Order now Evidence Based Policy Evaluation
Purpose: Objectives 2, 3, 6, and 7. The purpose of the evidence based policy evaluation project is to appraise the need for change based on evidence in the research, current standards of care, and current policy in a nursing theoretical framework and to document support of or recommend changes to current policy based on evidence.
- Students will select an topic/issue, locate the current policy in the students’ practice area/facility, and a guiding nursing theory. The student will submit the topic for the evidence based policy evaluation to faculty for approval.
- Students will use concepts and 3-5 professional resources to address the current policy, standards of care or best practices, evidence-based findings, and nursing theory to address the topic/issue.
- Professional resources may include research articles from peer-reviewed
journals, organization websites, published protocols and/or other professional credible
sources to support the current policy or suggested policy revisions.
- Students will complete the presentation of the project by creating a PowerPoint Poster using the supplied format, and voice-over technology [the “record narration” feature in Power Point] to explain the poster and the project. The poster sections include:
- Students will limit the presentation to 8-10 minutes.
- Students will upload the Practicum: Evidence-Based Policy Evaluation presentation into the corresponding assignment submission icon in Blackboard.
